    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    I guess just the fact that the leaks are awful should have been confirmation enough. Winds of Winter can't come soon enough.

    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Hello everyone, haven't posted here in a while. Can someone tell me what the consensus is on these leaks? How likely is it that they are actually true?
  3. The inclusion of LSH has nothing to do with her importance in the novel. They could have made LSH as important as they wanted on the show without resorting to book plotlines. Best example: Euron. In the books Euron is shaping up to be the greatest villain of the series, maybe only surpassed by the white walkers. If the leaks are true he will only amount to Cersei's sidekick in the show. There was no need to specifically introduce Euron just for this, yet they did it. Mind you, I am not advocating for a LSH inclusion. To me it's just one less character the showrunners have gotten their hands onto. I just think that the argument that the showrunners always perfectly know which book characters are important is absurd. Speaking of which, when the Greyjoy brothers weren't introduced in season 5 a lot of people were saying that they obviously won't be important to the plot. But then Euron got into season 6, and people were like ''Oh, Euron will be important in the books I guess''. Even though it's turning out that they will play completely different roles in show and book. The showrunners don't always know best.
  4. Preston Jacobs uploaded a new video about his meeting with GRRM. Apparently a guy there asked GRRM if LSH will appear on the show, and he said no. So yeah, no LSH. I admire your perserverance though. Here's the video: Skip to around 7:20.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 603?

    I'll be honest here. I don't even watch the show this year. I just watched the TOJ scene on youtube because I was curious how they will adapt one of the most iconic scenes. I had really low expectations, yet I was incredibly dissapointed. They just got it completely wrong. Ned's actor did a horrible job, yet he was the most important guy there. All the focus was on the fight, when in the books the fight is not even described and Ned is sad that he has to fight. It's supposed to be a sad event, not a cool showdown. No Dawn. Dayne is dual-wielding. Why did they make it a 6 vs. 2? Not that it really matters, but that's exactly the point. Why change something so insignificant? Why not just stick 100% to the books for once? And the worst part of it all was Bran saying that he heard the story of Ned defeating Dayne a thousand times. Because that's totally what Ned would do. So yeah, 1/10 for this abomination alone.

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    The Prophet's Song by Queen reminds me of The Long Night, with it's lines like: Oh, oh people of the earth Listen to the warning The prophet he said For soon the cold of night will fall Summoned by your own hand. and: He told of death as a bone white haze Taking the lost and the unloved babe Late too late all the wretches run These kings of beasts now counting their days. Also Estranged by Guns'N'Roses reminds me of Jaime Lannister, especially this part: When I find out all the reasons Maybe I'll find another way Find another day With all the changing seasons of my life Maybe I'll get it right next time
  7. 3/10. Would have been a 1 if not for some superb acting (again). The show is wasting so much potential with this amazing cast.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    Well, I've just got around to watching this episode. And I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It was actually pretty good. The good stuff was Cersei and Hardhome. The only thing I didn't like about Hardhome was that the ''wights'' looked like generic zombies. Otherwise it was very intense. Some minor details here and there but it was actually enjoyable to watch, a feeling I maybe had for the first time this season. Rest of the episode was crap though. Tyrion/Dany was awful and the only thing making the WF storyline watchable is Alfie's superb acting. Hardhome took up most of the time though, and even otherwise it was a step-up from most of the season. 7/10

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    1. I was not insulting you, nor was my post aimed specifically at you. 2. The fact that they have put a lot of effort into the product is irrelevant to the argument. 3. They did not even try. What we are seeing on TV has almost nothing to do with the fourth and fifth book. They tried to tell their own story. Which means it's impossible for the books to be at fault here.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 508?

    Wow. Again people blaming the books, when the show has almost nothing to do with them anymore. How can the books be at fault here when almost none of their material is in the show? Is it the books fault the showrunners can't come up with a good story? No. Seriously. I'm starting to think some people saying this shit haven't even read the books.

    [Book Spoilers] EP507 Discussion

    It's not a ''George move''. Since in the books, Cersei is more despicable then the Sparrows.
  12. Easily worst episode this season. And I've already given some others 3/10. So my hand is kind of forced here. 2/10
